Homemade quill pens for Inktober!

In anticipation of the start of Inktober, I created a couple new quill pens. I'll use these on some of the pieces I create throughout October.

Pelican quill: very sturdy and holds ink well, though not for long.
Works beautifully broad-side after being dipped in water to create
wash effects.
13 inches from tip to tip.
Older crow quill, made in 2010; no longer holds ink well.
2010 piece made with aforementioned crow quill,
complete with Rob Zombie lyrics.
New crow quill with some Gorilla Tape padding.
